Lowrance X91 issues - won't power on

3 posts in this topic

Had a Lowrance X91 installed for about 4 years...always worked flawlessly... Last summer, the transducer slowly stopped working so I bought a new one. Unit worked great for about 2 months.

One day it just decided not to power on... For not having any issues with any Lowrance units for 10+ years... the transducer and unit appear to have gone out with 2 months.

Coincidentally...both issues occurred after driving over very deep water...like 300+ feet over a mine pit. Drove over the mine pit, next day transducer went out...2 months later, drive over the mine pit...then the unit won't turn back on.

Does anyone think that could have caused an issue. Seems crazy to think that would cause a problem...but thats the facts.

Also...is a hard reset possible even though I can't turn the unit on...its like it doesnt have power. I have replaced the fuse to no avail.

Any help or insight is appreciated...hopefully I get some responses or help before i go spend $200 - $300 for a new unit.

I had the same thing happen on my old X85. I found mice had been chewing the cables...

Any knicks or little cuts in the transducer wires?

Get yourself a meter or test light and make sure you have 12 volts going to the unit.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
